race than he was a few weeks ago. jon, we were talking earlier on the surface it seems like a few points shift but given the backdrop of this economy and unemployment it's pretty dramatic. >> and the factor seems to be the debt ceiling standoff. take a look at the numbers against mitt romney, the president last opened up a lead, a pretty significant lead you see there of 51% to 44%. the lead is even more dramatic against other other candidate. look where he was a month ago, mitt romney was tied with president obama. the big factor here, in fact, the only factor that has really changed is that independent voters have moved away from the republicans and towards the president. >> so independent voters watching the debt showdown and weighing in. >> reporter:s that sea exactly right and don't like the way the republicans have been handling it. >> speaking of the republicans you take a look at how they're stacking up with the race. a familiar name starting to inch up. >> romney is still the front-runner if you look at the republican field. but look who is number two, not even a candidat

on the outcome. abc's jon karl joins us with the latest. what about it? how close are we finally to a deal? >> reporter: getting close to a deal. the outlines of this deal include up to $3 trillion in spending cuts over the next ten years including some cuts to popular entitlement programs like medicare and social security, also, elizabeth, it would include a promise or a commitment that congress would bring more money in through tax revenues by reforming the code, closing some of those loopholes, something that congress would act on. >> that last one, isn't that basically a tax increase in disguise? >> well, certainly some will call it that. the rates won't go up. congress would have to act over the next year. if they didn't ago, automatic steps would be taken that both sides wouldn't like which would be tax hikes and spending cuts possibly talking about repealing part of the health care bill. >> even if president obama and speaker boehner reach a deal they have their own rank and file to make happy. i was struck by a comment by barbara mikulski. we heard reports of a trillion dollar cut
